Not really a 5 star film but certainly worthy of 4

Writing about web page

4 out of 5 stars

As the other reviewers point out this film is not well documented on the sleeve blurb. Indeed the redeeming feature of the film is the expansive photography as the plot is extremely thin and not what the cover would lead you to expect.
Thus the storyline allows the film to explore more visual aspects and the interplay between the characters outside of the flimsy plot is refreshing and a joy to watch. A good film with excellent photography but not quite 5 star material for me.

Fantastic primer for anyone starting in Project Management

4 out of 5 stars

A fantastic easy read introduction to Project Management. Allowed most of my direct report Project Managers to get to grips with the basis and be just using this book got on and passed the ISEB IS Project Management qualification as well.
Great for anyone considering taking up Project Management or in the early years of their project management career. Nothing really here for the experienced professional but excellent value if you want to accredit your learning with a qualification. Just shy of 5 stars as it’s a work related book and not one I’d read for pleasure.

Well keeping up the postings so far …

Well I’ve managed to post regularly this week both to my blog but also to the Project Management induction site which hopefully will mean I pass the induction period.
Realised after posting this year’s subjects that I never posted what I learnt last year:
Accounting and Financial Management
Organisational Behaviour
Market Analysis
Operations Management
Modelling and Analysis for Management

It was a tough year especially having to relearn how to learn but as I’ve said previously I did manage to pass part A … so hoping for similar success this year.
